A Senate committee has passed more than two dozen amendments to the federal government’s cannabis legalization bill, including one that would allow provinces and territories to ban home-grown marijuana.
But the social affairs committee has refused to accept an amendment that would have prohibited home cultivation outright.
Bill C-45 would allow individuals to grow up to five plants in a single dwelling.
But Quebec and Manitoba have decided to prohibit home cultivation, setting up future legal challenges in which Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould has said the federal legislation would prevail.
